My name is Audrey Thomassen, i am the property manager of villa Lofos. Eighteen years ago my husband and I came to Crete for the first time on a holiday. It was love at the first sight and it didn't take too long when we decided to buy a piece of land and built our holiday home. After having enjoyed our own ‘home away’ for a few years and getting to know the local people and the surroundings a little better, we decided to construct a few villas for rent for luxurious holidays. We were convinced that Sisi and its surroundings are ideal for holiday makers that value tranquillity, privacy and comfort. In the meantime other villa owners joined Luxury villas on Crete and started renting their villas through us. Together we make sure that our guests are being taken care in the highest standards and that they spend here on the beautiful island of Crete their unforgettable holiday in lavish, comfortable and luxurious surroundings.
Audrey Thomassen purchased this villa in 2009
The villa is located between 2 picturesque villages, Sisi and Milatos, stunning sea and mountain views, 4 beaches on just 5 minutes drive, great local, Cretan tavernas , all on just 5-10 minute drive.
Audrey made us feel extremely welcome and comfortable, she was on hand if we needed any advice on anything from the property to places to visit.
The property was extremely well kept and very unique, with more than ample space for 8 adults. The local area was untouched by commercialism, the locals were extremely friendly and many of the restaurants that we visited knew Audrey and were very attentive. We spent a day in Malia on my wife's birthday and again was spoilt by the staff at Candy Club's Beach Bar.
We had a fantastic holiday and we were all very sad to leave and would love to return, highly recommended.
Villa Lofos was the ideal place for our 2 week family holiday. 7 adults and 2 children (ages 5 & 7). The villa is in an idyllic location in the hills between Sisi and Milatos with the most beautiful views of the sea over the hills below. The facilities in the villa are second to none and has more than enough to cater for anyone's needs. The many relaxing rattan furniture areas and shaded areas were great for the children and adults alike and more than enough seating around the pool, and for meals with 2 large outdoor dining tables and one indoor too. Most importantly the service provided by both Audrey and Eva was fabulous with any contact being acknowledge immediately if we had any questions or issues with anything. They were incredibly helpful and friendly with their welcoming personalities making us all feel at home upon arrival. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone who is looking to have a nice private break with friends or family of up to 8-10 people as the villa is pure luxury and the nearby villages of Milatos and Sisi have many restaurants and tavernas that serve amazing food. We will most definitely be returning at some point in the future.
The property was perfect for our family of five (two adults, three teenaged girls). The pool area had lots of seating and was great for relaxing, and the interior of the house was very clean, and well laid out, allowing everyone to have space and privacy. Sisi and Heraklion were within easy driving distance, and there were a couple of really excellent restaurants close by. Audrey and her staff were very helpful, both before and during our stay, and we really enjoyed the car rental service provided by Smile!
Milatos and Sisi are two picturesque fishing villages with many very good fish tavernas, 2 fishing ports and a nice 4 nice beaches.
In ancient times, Milatos (Militos) was an important city with various colonies, and was one of only seven Cretan cities that sent troops to fight in Troy.
Milatos Village, with its kafeneion-tavernas, is a picturesque community about a kilometre before the coastal Milatos settlement. Many Europeans have bought old village homes here, and refurbished them in the original style.
Armed with a camera, a walk through the narrow village streets will provide you with many wonderful snap-shot memories of your holiday. More busy places like Malia and Hersonisos are on only 15 minutes drive.
